2 Days To Purdue Basketball: John McKeeman

New, 5 comments

A walk-on player who comes from a family of Boilermakers

With only a couple more days till opening night, today we'll be looking at the last of our walk-ons for this season.

Jon McKeeman - So.

Hometown: Ft. Wayne Indiana (Carroll HS)

Guard

6'1" 180 pounds

2013 Projection: Benchwarmer

McKeeman came to Purdue as a second-team ALL-NHC honors as a senior. During his senior season he averaged 11.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. He was the team captain of his high school and was named first-team Academic All-State senior year. McKeeman is studying chemistry at Purdue and is also the eighth member of his family to come to Purdue.

Because of how deep we are at guard this year, it's a guarantee McKeeman will never see any meaningful minutes during the regular or any post-season we may be involved in. Although he will never light up a stat sheet, McKeeman may be our strongest candidate for Mark Titus' Club Trillion National Player of the Year Belt. An award that no Boilermaker has ever received. This could finally be our year to take home the ever so coveted belt.
